Palestinians injured in clashes with Israeli soldiers in West Bank: medics

About 100 Palestinian protesters were injured on Friday during clashes with Israeli soldiers in several West Bank towns and villages, according to the Palestine Red Crescent Society.

Among the injured, four were shot by live ammunition, 22 by rubber bullets and others suffered from inhaling teargas, according to the organization.

Fierce clashes broke out near the villages of Beita and Beit Dajan, south and east of Nablus city respectively, and near the village of Kafr Qaddum, east of Qaqilya city, according to Palestinian eyewitnesses.

Dozens of anti-settlement demonstrators burned tires and threw stones at the Israeli soldiers stationed on the outskirts of the villages, said the eyewitnesses.

Israeli authorities have not given any comment on the incidents.

Beita and Beit Dajan have seen weekly protests by Palestinians against the expansion of Israeli settlements.

Israel occupied the West Bank and East Jerusalem, which are claimed by the Palestinians, in the 1967 Middle East war.
